Fruit just might be the ultimate food. Delicious and brimming with an array of vitamins and minerals, plus low in calories, fruit goes far beyond a glass of orange juice with breakfast. Recent studies suggest that berries, cherries, grapes, pomegranates and a plethora of exotic tropical goodies may help prevent cancer, heart disease and the age-related brain fuzzies.

But why visit the pharmacy for all this nutrition? Just pull up a chair at the breakfast table. Fifty years of scientific research have shown that the healthiest diets are loaded with fruits and vegetables. For decades, the main reason to eat fruit was thought to be vitamin C. Recently, though, a host of new tongue-twisting nutrient chemicals have dominated the discussion. Now the news is coming at us like an avalanche: More than 65 scientific studies have been published since 2004 on the antioxidants from bilberry (Vaccinium myrtillus) alone.

Makes 2 to 3 servings

  • ½ cup orange juice
  • ½ cup frozen raspberries
  • 1 orange, peeled, seeded and chopped
